How PainTheory can help you find relief

How to get started with PainTheory

Step 1

Complete a short online questionnaire

Answer a few questions to find out if you’re a good candidate for uterine fibroid embolization (UFE).

Step 2

Talk with a Care Coordinator to schedule a visit

Schedule a brief 10-minute call with a Care Coordinator ask questions, learn about treatment, and start the scheduling process.

Step 3

Visit your specialist, discuss moving forward with UFE

At your consultation, your doctor will assess your medical history, discuss relevant treatment options and answer questions about uterine fibroid embolization and other treatments.

Step 4

Take care of your fibroids

Uterine fibroid embolization is a simple, outpatient procedure that takes about 90-minutes in the doctor’s office.

A tiny tube called a catheter is advanced from either the artery in your wrist or groin to the arteries feeding the fibroids. 

The arteries supplying the fibroids are blocked by tiny beads, the catheter is then removed from the body, and a band-aid is applied.

1-2 hours after the procedure, you go home. Over the next 2-4 weeks, the fibroids will significantly shrink in size. Maximum symptom relief is achieved at 3 months.

I was really scared to have this procedure today but everyone was very encouraging, kind and took excellent care of me. Dr Patel was gentle and kept me calm. His nurses are fabulous and stayed with me to keep me safe afterwards. I had almost immediate relief of pain in some areas. I’m feeling very optimistic.
